to blame sandy and chris christie for mitt romney's loss. he has to reaffirm the republican base that he's with them. >> ari, when you look at the president's approval numbers on the storm, i believe it's 67% of the public according to our nbc news numbers, 67% approve, 16% disapprove. 17% not sure. it's not something that the republicans want, certainly sandy has done a good job of not only making the case are for government but showing that the president is capable of working across the aisle? >> yeah. i don't think that people really in ohio, for example, are going to change their mind over the last minute over this leadership, good as it is. but i do think to your point that what we see here is a freezing of the political facts that existed a week ago where mitt romney was gaining a little but no way in the lead. the new poll number out tonight still show this slight but real edge for the president. and not a big edge. but, again, mitt romney lost a week of politicking here and that is the biggest problem. if the republicans now as a prebuttal or on tuesday after they lose, try to pu

number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u

[applause] as you know four years ago barack obama promised to do so much. he promised to be a bipartisan but he became the most partisan. then he was going to focus on jobs instead he focused on obama care
repeat the question. go ahead. >> [inaudible] >> the impact of hurricane sandy on the election; great question. >> well, our polling showed that there was an impact -- our final poll showed obama with 57% and romney with 47%. we had a dead tie a week earlier. so, the only intervening event at that time was sandy come and obama about 70% approval for his handling of the situation. a plurality of romney supporters also approved. i think in the end it was modest. i don't think it really ticked one way or the other. i think obama had been edging a little bit ahead even prior to the hurricane. i think the last two debates obviously not as important as the first. it never is. but, you know obama had not only stemmed the momentum following the first debate, but also i think had developed slightly a little bit of his own. i think in the end it probably helped him. certainly the atmospherics and the symbols of chris christi embracing him on a well-known republican helped him i think was on the margin pretty much. might have felt in the popular vote of northeast. we did see a big swing for obam
as likely voters. host: as he had been doing these polls, was hurricane sandy is a prize? caller: it certainly was an october surprise. it had an effect on this election. what we found from the poll is that about 7 in 10 voters approved the president's handling of the hurricane. that would be republicans and democrats. only about 15% disapproved. unlike the heavy criticism that president bush got for his handling of katrina, this became a very different situation. what has happened here, i think, are a combination of things. people saw the president at work. they saw him essentially being a good steward in a time of serious crisis. they saw the ability for him to reach across the aisle and to work with the republican governor, chris christie, the governor of new jersey. the third thing i think that came out of all of this is the sense that government has a role to play. and that in all three of those instances, good policy and good professional work probably was very good politics for the president. having said that, it is important to know that the change we have seen in our own
at cspan.org. >> we're going to >> in response to hurricane sandy you will hear from fema administrator and we are joined by h.u.d, secretary and red cross senior v.p. for disaster services. following remarks we will be taking questions from reporters. we will take one question per person and with that i turn it over to the administrator. >> good afternoon. the response is i think if you get in some of the areas where storm surge was people had significant flood damage in their homes and the impact is reflected in our current registrations for assistance over 217,000 have registered and over right now we're at about $199 million in assistance has already been provided t. bulk of that $1993 million in housing and $6 million for eligible cost. and the numbers we expect to don't go up as people are able to get registered and get the assistance. but this also shows why it's going to take a strong federal partnership and state local government to address the homes damaged. as power comes on it's becoming clear for many people the longer term issues will be rebuilding and repairing their home
it to try to change the momentum away from hurricane sandy is the way to generate excitement. the race is tightening. it did not deploy bill clinton if you thought you have [inaudible] >> we use the ap for official calls in states. we will get the updates for other networks. nbc is calling the massachusetts senate race for elisabeth warren -- elizabeth warren. that makes some math for republicans winning back the senate almost impossible. it will put a prominent liberal in the senate and take out a republican. one of the few moderate republicans left in the senate. that person will be ousted and join olympia snowe left because she was sick of the politics of washington. one of the things you need to keep in mind is you want to wins in these races. you will end up with a much more polarized senate. elizabeth warren -- is almost instantly a national figure. talk about the importance of this race. >> in terms of the moderates and the senate, what is going to happen in this election is you'll get totally elected in indiana, and you have a lot of friends for people like joe manchin. even th
of his constituents who were under siege from hurricane sandy. he has his priorities in order. he knows his policy. he loves his american people. he is very patriotic. he is very good at politics. >> thank you very much. thank you to leader pelosi for her tenacity and her unprecedented work ethic. to my new colleagues -- welcome. the leader told me that it would be a labor when. i have enjoyed every day of this job. it says something about our unexpected pickups that you had to use your wide angle lenses to capture the incredible wealth of talent and diversity we have. with the new members, the tea party starts to roll back and problem solving can move forward. that is what this election was about. these leaders wake up every morning not thinking about left or right. they wake up thinking about how to move their communities forward, the country forward, how to solve problems. are may years to have had to balance budgets and the potholes'. they are veterans. they are small business people. they are doctors. the message that voters sent due out this country is that they want problem solve
